Peter the Great dreamed about a city that would be as unlike Moscow as possible, a modern city that would be designed to a plan. He realized his dream with the building of St. Petersburg. The first stone was laid in 1703, and Peter invited architects, masons, artists and craftsmen from all over Europe to create his new capital. After Peter, a succession of empresses and emperors added to the beauty of the city, each one of them giving to it a new style – Baroque, Rococo, Classical, Russian Revival.
Elegance and luxury are the words that come to mind when we speak of St. Petersburg. Art Nouveau, Baroque and Rococo lay an exquisite trail that weaves in and out of St. Petersburg’s canals in perfect symmetry.
A world capital for culture, St. Petersburg unarguably has one of the richest traditions of art, architecture, music and theater in the world and we invite you to immerse yourself in it with us.
It’s not enough to simply know the life of the Tsars. We invite you to experience it yourself with our intrinsic understanding of the city, our network on the ground, and behind-the-scenes access with our Exeter International Extraordinary Experiences.
